Last update: 21/07/2017

KUALA LUMPUR, July 21 (Bernama) --Power Root Berhad, famed for its Alicafe brand of coffee, is helping 36 Malaysians from all walks of life to fulfill their aspirations to perform the Umrah, in a unique initiative to give back to the community.

"We understand that going to Makkah to perform the Umrah and the Haj, is an obligation and duty for Muslims. And many of them save hard for years, just to be able to pay for the trip," its chairman Datuk Afifuddin Abdul Kadir said.

"We therefore decided to do our bit, by helping them to perform the Umrah, considered a minor Haj, through our "Tunaikan Hasrat Umrah" contest whereby we will give away 18 Umrah packages. As each package is for two persons, we are actually sending 36 of our customers to Makkah," he added.

Speaking at the prize-giving ceremony for the first seven winners, Afifuddin said: "To ensure that the winners travel to their Umrah without worries and are well-taken care of, we approached Tabung Haji Travel and Service to provide our winners with one of their top packages."

The contest was launched on May 1 in conjunction with Ramadan and will run until Sept 15.

As at July 15, seven winners have been picked, using an algorithm to calculate the winning serial number.
